HERES A REVIEW BY SOME GUY !!!
This is no toy. It's a well specified, reliable, well made, easy to use little drummer. It runs on batteries and often comes with a silver padded case. Henk has totally got it wrong as I'm sure everyone realises. A TR505 and DDD-1???...give me strength! The HR-16 was made by Alesis, so like me, I doubt there are any fully working examples about! Everything was 12 bit in those days..it doesn't sound weak or powerless(?). Boss made 2 versions...the A and E. Both are great little units. One is electric drums, the other acoustic. The sound is strong, Roland stuff. Tis is a better prospect than the 606 which is unreliable, limited and actually quite difficult to use. Also, that unit's claim to fame is that it looks like a 303! 30usd is sooo' 2003. The 220 has been collected, so expect to pay quite a bit for a good example. The few I've repaired have been water damaged. I tend to buy the totally-broken units I've had to skavvy for spares. The pads and switches are very reliable, unlike most Roland switches of the time. You can plug in a set of phones and compose great drum patterns whilst stuck on the bus/tube. Try doing that on a 909!
CHEAP AS HELL WITH BUY IT NOW!
